When Donald Trump first opened his mouth, the liberal media, Democrats, and the GOP establishment believed that attacking him would be a slam dunk. In fact, they believed they didn’t need to attack him. His own words would send him to the political backwater.
Boy, were they wrong.
“A new Monmouth University poll shows Donald Trump crushing fellow Republicans in New Hampshire, where he has double the support of the next closest candidate, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, among voters likely to participate in the Granite State primary. Trump’s 24 percent support bests Bush’s 12 percent in the poll, conducted July 23-26 of 467 New Hampshire voters expected to vote in the Republican primary.”
Bush is the establishment choice – even, it seems, among some Democrats as they see their hopes in Hillary being dashed. They need a “bring home the bacon” candidate, and it doesn’t have to be a Democrat.
It’s these types of stories that have kicked the political hornet’s nest. "The American people are sending a message to the Democrats through Bernie Sanders and the Republicans through Donald Trump, and people are angry out there, and that's what you're seeing," Richard Viguerie told "Newsmax Prime."
Over the years, Rush Limbaugh has said that there would be some event that would change the political landscape. It wouldn’t be something that could be planned or even anticipated. No one would know what it was until it happened.
Trump talking about in public what millions of Americans have been talking about in private for years. There has been a growing Silent Majority that has been dismissed by the Washington establishment in both parties, and as a result has avoided voting for what has increasingly becoming a single mega-party of self-aggrandizement and “follow-the-money” political maneuvering.
Both parties are fundamentally transforming American through immigration policies, and many legal immigrants are ticked off. The following is from “Hispanics for Trump: It’s No Joke”:
“A new poll of GOP primary voters in Nevada by One America news Network shows Trump in first place among Hispanics. He was the choice of 27.7% of all respondents. Among Hispanics, the figure jumped to 31.4%.”
There are millions of hard working immigrants in the United States. They don’t like line jumpers any more than a first grader at lunch.
Democrats want immigrants to secure their political base. Republicans want cheap labor. In reality, representatives and their financial backers in both parties make more money. “For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs” (1 Tim. 6:10).
It’s all about power, money, and prestige. The Republican establishment is content to be the minority party, even if it means being the lapdog to the Democrats as long as their supporters make more money.
In addition to the immigration issue, the Planned Parenthood exposé came out of left field. No one saw it coming and the impact it would have. Republicans and Democrats have always wanted to believe that the debate over abortion was over. It’s not.
Even so, the Republican establishment won’t touch the issue. Again, it’s a money issues. Big money Republican donors don’t like social issues. Their wives and daughters most likely have had abortions.
The general public, however, has been horrified over the revelation of PP’s gruesome business. They’ve learned of PP’s bloody body-parts selling through alternative media. The mainstream media have ignored the story, and when there has been reporting, it’s been to defend the tax-payer subsidized pro-abortion organization.
Even so, millions of conservative Americans know what’s going on, and they want their political leaders to do something about it. They’re tired of the cronyism, double dealing, lying, and foot dragging.
yes, Mr. Muslim, Christians are weak.
Posted by Wolfy Ghalkhani on July 26, 2015 at 8:37pm
A Facebook friend, Jack Pershing asked a Muslim what he thought of Christians. The Muslim replied, “Christians are weak.” Jack’s Facebook page exploded. He was outraged. I was outraged. Others who saw the post were outraged. Outrage can do lots of things–it can empower. It can energize. It can unite. But it cannot cover up the truth.
The Muslim was right- Christians are weak.
They have been for generations.
His comments hit a nerve. Telling the truth does that.
Decades of indoctrination via the media, and entertainment industry have taken its toll on the Christian psyche. Propaganda vigorously utilized within the schools and universities rendered us practically impotent. It didn’t take long before Christianity was completely eroded. For decades, education was molded into a shape our founding fathers would have gone berserk over. It was done purposefully by an evil that hides in the shadows obsessed by its hatred for American exceptionalism and its core faith. This evil known to us as the Left developed a plan of action that it knew eventually succeed.
Slowly and oh so softly, the Left took action. First, school prayer was banned followed by Christmas caroling and displaying Christmas trees. Eventually, the mere mention of the New Testament or Jesus was prohibited. The Left got what it wanted. The Christian element was removed from the public schools with hardly a murmur of dissent.
But that wasn’t all—heroes like Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett were cast aside. Presidents like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were dismissed. America itself was demonized as a racist country that hurt helpless peoples. Americans barely noticed.
The left knew what it was doing—when people don’t have a connection to their country’s history, they don’t develop patriotism. When people aren’t taught to love and honor their core faith, they don’t develop the spiritual spine needed to defend their civilization. When patriotism isn’t developed, people are like putty in a tyrant’s hands. Today, Many of our youth lack both patriotism and Christian spirituality. They have no foundation to rely on like the Muslim does. They are indeed weak.
Again this is nothing new. Its been happening for generations in the majority of school districts across our great land. Liberal Christians are America’s weakest link. They mistakenly believe America is immune to the rest of the world’s horrors. So its safe for them to bash their core faith, to revel in “white guilt” because somehow being guilty about being white makes them feel good. For Liberals, weakness is the new “cool.” So, Christian liberals attend inner faith meetings. They apologize to Muslims with gleeful smiles; too narcissist to understand that Muslims feel only contempt for weaklings.
Christian weakness is not a new phenomenon. Misinterpretations of what Jesus espoused have defanged and declawed Christianity. Jesus was no weakling. He went face to face against the Jews, calling them liars and deceivers. That took lots of courage- courage that we need so badly now.
The Muslim’s response to Jack Pershing was brutally honest. He didn’t care if he insulted a Christian. Christians are sub human, weak and cowardly. Since the beginnings of the Islamic conquests, Muslims have known that Christians are too weak to defend themselves even when they face genocide. Assyrian Christians are raped, murdered, or sold into slavery. And the Christian West does nothing. Europeans are raped, robbed and murdered by Muslims. Boys are chased down in the streets and beaten; girls are forced into sex rings. Yet Europeans refuse to take up arms against their tormentors. Yep, Mr. Muslim, Christians are weak.
The Supreme Court forces gay marriage on a Christian nation. Christians cry foul but do nothing to protect their churches. That’s our shame and our burden. I know that our forefathers would have reacted differently. Christians are indeed weak. But not Muslims- Muslims are never weak. They know who they are and what their religion stands for. Their Qur’an is set in blood. It cannot be altered. And if anyone tries, the Muslims will tear them to pieces.
Yep, Mr. Christian, Muslims are not weak.
Their religion’s foundation is based on the culture of their ancestors- a warrior, Bedouin culture of polygamy, rapine, slavery, genocide, perversity and the occasional acts of necrophilia. Yet the Muslim never apologizes. He never justifies. He never tries to convince. It’s the way of his God and that’s that. Yet, Christians apologize, justify, and plead for forgiveness- a sign of a weakness that borders on a psychosis. It’s enough to make a conservative Christian like me nauseous. The irony is Jesus was not effeminate. He was a fighter. He never meant for Christians to be spineless. He said,” I bring you the sword”—that sword was meant to be used.
It’s not too late for Christianity to regain its former glory and fearlessness. For over a thousand years, Christians battled Muslims without hesitation. They waved their banners of the Virgin Mary high. They knew who they were and they knew how the enemy was. They never apologized.
Sadly, we are not our forefathers. We live in world of political correctness and because of that we don’t know who we are or the enemy is. Not knowing has weakened us to a critical level. A weakened core faith and its civilization can easily collapse and die.
Western civilization is incredibly weak and so is its core faith. If we don’t take drastic action, both will collapse and die. And, if that happens, we will be faced with Islam.
Throughout history, Islam has done nothing but bring war, famine, and genocide. It destroys happiness and prosperity. Its success relies totally terror. Westerners need to ask- Do we really want Islam to rule over us? Even the left needs to think hard about that one. If the answer is no – then we need to stand up, and fast. Christianity must forgo the meager “turn the other cheek.”
True Christians are never weaklings. They know in their heart of hearts that true Christians wear the cross on their chests and the sword at their hips. I’m not weak. People like Jack Pershing are not weak. There are millions of us out there who want America’s core faith to survive. Not just for us but for our children and their progeny. They deserve to live in the Christian nation their founding fathers envisioned for them.

"We gather together to stand as 1 unit against this demonic spirit."
After weeks of speculation and protests by Christian leaders in Detroit, the unthinkable took place.
Just after 11 p.m. on July 25, a satanic organization unveiled a 9-foot statue of the goat-headed Baphomet, a pagan symbol of Lucifer. The 1-ton statue features two young children looking up adoringly at the devil.
Leaders of the Satanic Temple have been saying for weeks they planned to unveil the statue somewhere in Detroit and leave it there temporarily before moving it to Arkansas, where they plan to set it beside the Ten Commandments at the State Capitol. This is the same statue they attempted to erect months ago in the Oklahoma State Capitol.
Nine Detroit preachers have done battle with the Satanic Temple, protesting the statue being brought to their city and pleading with the city not to allow it.
“They got kicked out of Boston, Oklahoma didn’t want them, they tried to put (it) up in Florida, that was shut down,” said David Bullock of Greater St. Matthew Baptist Church in Detroit at a recent news conference. “Now they come to Detroit. Why do they come to Detroit?”
“We gather together to stand, as one unit, against this demonic spirit,” said Pastor Don Shelby of Burning Bush International Ministries.
Everything you always wanted to know about the devil but were too afraid to ask is revealed in the autographed bestseller, “Shocked by the Bible”
Area Catholics held a special mass aimed at countering the spirit of the Satanists.
About 250 parishioners and supporters gathered Saturday morning at St. Joseph Catholic Church to pray for Detroit.
The Satanic Temple eventually got its way, as city leaders allowed them put up their statue.
The chosen site was the Lauhoff Corporation building in the Rivertown Warehouse District.
ChurchMilitant.com found the location, and several of its staff infiltrated the building, “where a loud party was in full swing,” the Catholic group said on its website.
“An earlier downpour had come through the roof and flooded the dance floor, and approximately 100 people milled around the dark, smoke-filled room. As the rain ceased, more people trickled in, and towards midnight the number went up to about 400. On one side of the room stood an inverted red cross, and on the other the nine-foot-tall statue of Baphomet, covered in a white sheet.”
But Church Militant brought their own version of a heavenly statue, only instead of a fallen angel, theirs was a sculpture of the Archangel Michael.
Church Militant had a 6-foot bronze statue of the archangel, which they hauled in a flatbed truck and prayed the prayer of St. Michael while encircling the site three times.
“At 11 p.m., two men in leather S&M attire grabbed each side of the sheet and yanked it off, to loud applause and shouting. The men then stood directly in front of the monument and began kissing lewdly while the crowd cheered, and afterwards a steady stream of VIP ticket holders — who had paid $75 for the chance to approach the statue — took turns sitting on Baphomet’s lap while engaging in sexual groping, mostly homosexual in nature.”
Church Militant also crashed the indoor “unveiling party” and photographed the satanic supporters – and while some interviewed by a local TV station said they don’t actually worship Satan others did describe themselves as anti-Christian. Visible in one of the photographs is an illuminated, upside-down cross.
Satanic party-goers paid $25 for a ticket, and $75 to get photographed on Baphomet’s lap.
“We brought our six-foot bronze statue of St. Michael, who normally rests in our Abp. Fulton J. Sheen studio, as a counter-witness to the blasphemous goat-headed statue of Baphomet, meant to represent Satan,” the Catholic group said on its website. “According to Scripture, St. Michael is the angel who did battle against Lucifer and cast him out of Heaven into the Abyss.”
The Satanic Temple chose Detroit last year as home to its national chapter house.
“Detroit is our first and primary chapter,” spokesman Doug Mesner told the Detroit Metro Times. “We feel at home in Detroit.”
The Metro Times had previously referred to the Satanic Temple as “atheist” but was quickly corrected.
“The Satanic Temple has taken issue with our description of the organization as an “atheist activist group.” We apologize for the misrepresentation,” the newspaper said on its website.
The group’s request to place the satanic monument next to the Ten Commandments monument at the Oklahoma State Capitol was rejected. Mesner told Detroit Metro Times that the group is gearing up for a lawsuit against Oklahoma.

So who are these heroic Christians? They were mostly Americans who said enough is enough. While President Obama could not rescue one Christian (Saeed Abedini) out of Iran, American Christians and others through RescueChristians.org decided to do the job in Pakistan and show how things are done.
The case of Arif Yousaf Masih, a well-reputed firework maker, has been accused of blasphemy and was imprisoned for nearly two years, after some of the products he made were found to use paper containing Arabic writing. But the good news is that the case should be a joy to all who contributed to the cause of Rescue Christians for working diligently with our associate team Farrukh Saif Foundation (FSF) in Pakistan and succeeded yesterday to secure his release. Arif was in custody at one of the worst prisons in Pakistan maximum security jail, the Gujranwala central prison for being accused of blasphemy against the prophet Muhammad.
“Send me a Bible” Arif said to his lawyer. The Paul of Gujranwala, asked his colleagues to not forget “especially the parchments” (II. Tim. 4, 13). He wanted to prove to the world that the torture he received did not make him bend the knee to Baal.
“I am a Christian, still and will always be” Arif said to the police officials as he carried his Bible.
Arif told Nadeem Hassan, his Christian lawyer, to send the Bible because the police officials in the jail were attempting to force him to convert and take the oath of Antichrist. Instead, Arif carried the Bible in their faces to show them, like the five wise virgins, that his purity towards Christ is still intact and that he will never forsake His Lord and Savior.
His attorney Nadeem, after the Bible was sent, noticed his hand and feet were swelled and he had a minor head injury as well. But this was an honor for Arif who thought himself unworthy, His Lord, after all, had the pierced hands and feet and the head wound from the Crown of Thorns.
When Arif was arrested in October, 28th, 2013, Rescue Christians had worked diligently and relocated his younger brother, Tariq Yousaf, whom the extremists charged with blasphemy. Rescue Christians protected Tariq from being imprisoned and sent him to a safe country out of Pakistan. His story can be viewed in this video:
The fight began three days prior, when on the 25th of October, 2013, Muslim villagers, Khurram Shahzed and Muzammil Malik accused the brothers who owned a wedding fire-cracker business of manufacturing fire-crackers out of the pages from the Quran.
The brothers were tortured by the accusers. Truth to be told, that the Muslim community supported the brothers’ innocence. But FIR charges were filed by Shahzed and Muzammil and the police then started arresting family members including Arif, while Tariq reached out to Rescue Christians who took him to a safe house, then transited him out of the country and began his refugee status filing with UNHCR. Arif was not so fortunate, but the experience nevertheless strengthened his faith.
Today the good news came when Rescue Christian’s NGO in Pakistan sent this message: “Few minutes ago Pakistani court in Wazirabad had released Arif Yousaf Victim of Blasphemy Law who was arrested in 2013″. Arif this morning, stood in front of the Additional Session Judge of Wazirabad of the Punjab, Iftikhar Hussain Cheema and was declared innocent of the charges.
The danger was not over, since extremists usually camp outside of the prison, but this hurdle is over. While we cannot disclose the details, what can be said is, “mission accomplished” and the rest of the operation including the details will be disclosed at a later time when Arif is finally secured in a different location.
2013 was the worst year for the Pakistani Christians when dozens of cases of Balpshemy was registered against the innocent Christians.
Hats off to Nadeem Hassan, Arif’s Christian attorney, who worked diligently on the case and was able to succeed in Pakistan where Obama failed in Iran. Special thanks to all of our supporters and donors, since none of this could have been accomplished without your efforts.
Blasphemy law is one of the deadly dangerous laws in Pakistan. Hundreds of Minorities have been falsely accused of blasphemy against the Prophet of Islam and the Koran. Rescue Christians, including all their supporters, are one of the best campaigners against this law and in recent years Rescue Christians proved that fighting is the only way when they rescued Amanat Masih, Ryan Stanton, Martha Bibi , Geroge Naz, Tariq Yousaf, Barkat Masih, these are only a few cases of victims released from Jail, not to forget, the thousands of slaves rescued from brick kilns.
America, with all of its might and power, cannot even rescue one Christian American pastor in Iran. This is not because America does not have the capability to do so, it is because the current administration does not want to save this man. America gave weapons to Islamic rebels in Syria and Iraq, it overthrew Gaddafi by helping the Islamist terrorists and giving them tons of weapons. America has overthrown empires. It cannot rescue one helpless pastor?
The issue has nothing to do with capabilities, and everything to do with interest. It is not of the administration’s interest to rescue a pastor because it doesn’t care about Christians, if it did, it wouldn’t be helping all of the terrorists who kill Christians. In reality, the mindset of the terrorists is a microcosm of the US administration. The former hates and kills Christians, but the latter hates and kills Christians at a massive scale; the terrorist is only one illustration of this hatred. Twenty Christians escaped Iraq to come to America, the land of the free, only to be held in prison as illegal immigrants, while the administration is allowing terrorists and drug dealers to come right across the border. This is no coincidence. It is an internal invasion, of anti-Christian forces doing everything it can to destroy the Faith, both from within and without.
Christians in the West, especially the United States, said enough is enough, and Rescue Christians was born. The efforts and donations of Americans and our international supporters who value freedom and their Judeo Christian heritage, began to trickle, and as the Lord said, with their mustard seed faith, moved the mountains.

The head of the top House investigative panel Monday called for the firing of IRS chief John Koskinen, arguing he has repeatedly “obstructed” congressional probes into the agency’s political targeting of taxpayers.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Affairs, made his request Monday in a letter to President Obama, arguing the president vowed in 2013 to “work hand-in-hand with Congress to fix the problem.”
However, Chaffetz argued that Koskinen, during his roughly two-and-a-half-year tenure, has obstructed such efforts by failing to testify truthfully, comply with subpoenas and preserve as many as 24,000 emails related to congressional investigations.
“Mr. Koskinen should no longer be the IRS commissioner,” Chaffetz said in prepared remarks for a Capitol Hill press conference announcing his request. “At best, Commissioner Koskinen was derelict in his duties to preserve agency records. At worst, he and the IRS engaged in an orchestrated plan to hide information from Congress.”
"The record is clear that the IRS and Commissioner Koskinen have been cooperative and truthful with the numerous investigations underway," the IRS said in a statement. "The agency has produced more than one million pages of documents in support of the investigations, provided 52 current and former employees for interviews and participated in more than 30 Congressional hearings on these issues."
The IRS largely targeted for additional scrutiny Tea Party groups and other organizations with conservative-sounding names that were seeking tax-exempt status from April 2010 to April 2012, the election cycle that ended with Obama’s re-election victory.
However, the public didn’t learn about the targeting until Lois Lerner, who ran the IRS’s exempt-organizations unit, made it public in May 2013.
In a March 2014 Capitol Hill hearing on the IRS scandal, Lerner asserted her Fifth Amendment privilege, which allows people to not testify against themselves.
However, Republicans argued that she waived the privilege with an opening statement she made before the committee in a May 2013 hearing. All of the chamber’s Republican members and six Democrats officially voted in May 2014 to hold her in contempt.
The Justice Department investigated the matter but declined to prosecute Lerner.
Chaffetz also vowed to “pursue all constitutional remedies at our disposal, including potential contempt proceedings or perhaps impeachment” should the president fail to remove Koskinen.
“The American people will never know all the facts surrounding the agency’s targeting of conservative tax-exempt … groups,” Chaffetz also said in his prepared statement.“This is an unacceptable outcome and one that demands those responsible be held accountable.”
So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. -Isaiah 59:19
We haven't heard much from the ongoing battle in Houston against Lesbian Mayor Annise Parker's unlawful bathroom ordinance. However, the Texas Supreme Court handed down a victory for the Church on Friday.
In a twelve page ruling the high court must either put the ordinance to a vote or repeal it.
"If the city council does not repeal the ordinance by August 24, 2015, then by that date the city council must order that the ordinance be put to popular vote during the November 2015 election," reads the ruling.
The court also wrote, "'the power of . . . referendum . . . is the exercise by the people of a power reserved to them,' and this power should be protected."
They went on to state, "Second, city officials must perform their ministerial duties." Notice that term "ministerial." It comes from Romans 13:1-5. "But the city council did not do so. Instead, it refused to fulfill its ministerial duty, forcing the petition organizers to file suit," read the opinion.
"Once the city council received the city secretary's certification, it had a ministerial duty to act," the court's ruling read. "According to the charter, following the city secretary's certification, 'the council shall immediately reconsider such ordinance or resolution and, if it does not entirely repeal the same, shall submit it to popular vote at the next city general election.'"
The ruling continued, "Faced with the city secretary's certification, the city council had no discretion but to repeal the ordinance or proceed with the election process. If the city council believed the city secretary abused her discretion in certifying the petition or otherwise erred in her duties, it was nevertheless obligated to fulfill its duties under the charter and thereafter seek any affirmative relief to which it might be entitled.
"When officials refuse to do so, and when there is no adequate remedy by appeal, mandamus may issue," the ruling continued.
The court then concluded "that the Houston City Council has not performed a ministerial duty and there is no adequate remedy by appeal. Accordingly, we conditionally grant mandamus relief."
Thus, the ordinance has been suspended by the court until either it is repealed by the City of Houston or is put on a referendum in November 2105. As a result, Parker's attorneys made demands via a subpoena for the sermons of pastors in the area.
If you recall, the city had illegally put the ordinance into place and was called out on it, resulting in a citizen's petition to put the measure on the ballot in 2014. The necessary signatures were obtained and the city secretary, Anna Russell, who has served Houston for more than 40 years, validated the signatures to determine that the petition had met the legal requirements, which it did. In fact, it got three times more signatures than required.
But the City of Houston changed their story to claim the signatures were never validated. They openly lied as Ms. Russell confirmed in her official report about the petition, Russell said, "As of July 27, 2014, the number of qualified city of Houston voters who signed the petition had been verified with a margin of error."
Russell also claimed the city attorney David Feldman attempted to get her to engage in illegal activity by altering her findings.
Pastors in the Houston area and across the county stood against the measure, flooding Mayor Parker's office with Bibles and calling out to God to vindicate their stand. Several also openly stated that the mayor had used deception "every step of the way" in defending her unlawful ordinance.
At one point, Mayor Parker had openly said that the pastors had absolutely no right to a jury trial in the matter, but it seems that the law has won out and the court has ruled in the favor of the pastors and the people of Houston.
This is what happens when you don't back down and you see justice through, trusting that God will vindicate His people, those who stand for righteousness.

A self-described Satanic group held the "largest public satanic ceremony in history" on Saturday in Detroit as it unveiled a statue of the devil to a crowd of some 700 people.
The statue of Baphomet, the goat-headed version of Satan, shows the devil sitting on a throne looking all pagan and demonic as smiling children look on adoringly.
The group behind this 1-ton bronze monstrosity is The Satanic Temple. Organizers said the 9-foot-tall statue "is not only an unparalleled artistic triumph, but stands as a testament to plurality and the power of collective action."
In other words, it's a big honking finger in the eye of Christians, which is really what Satanism is all about.
The temple is fighting to get the hideous thing erected at the Arkansas State Capital next to a monument of the Ten Commandments.
What's most interesting about this event isn't the audacity of keeping the statue at a secret location in Detroit (I wonder how many major cities have statues of the devil kept at secret locations), and it's not that 700 people are hate-filled, deluded or psychotic enough to have paid for tickets to this event. (The temple claims 200 registered members in Detroit.)
It's not even the brazenness of The Satanic Temple's ploy of positioning itself as a family-friendly cult.
No, what I find most interesting are the political causes the temple proclaims support for on its own website.
Leading among these are abortion ("reproductive rights") and gay "marriage," both of which have been in the news of late.
The temple also makes common cause with atheist groups when it says the statue's unveiling "will serve as a call to arms from which we’ll kick off our largest fight to date in the name of individual rights to free exercise against self-serving theocrats," meaning Christians.
The Satanic Temple has something else in common with groups like the Freedom From Religion Foundation in that they position themselves as outsiders from the religious mainstream who somehow still have religious rights that can be offended by Christians.
Gay "marriage" and abortion are also issues where critics have long noted an anti-Christian bent among proponents, so the Satanists' interest is clear.
The anti-Christian movement in this country is broad and often well-disguised, being spread out over numerous institutions, groups and political issues. But the one thing they all have in common, from pro-abortionists to the outright Satanists, is a talent for lying.
Just take a look at Planned Parenthood and its massive PR counterattack in the past two weeks as two separate videos showed PP officials negotiating the sale of fetal tissue.
Every left-wing outlet in the mainstream media and the Internet has made a concerted effort to tell the public that Planned Parenthood is being harassed and the videos are faked, even though the doctors in the videos make themselves very clear and do not appear to be in any way coerced into talking to the actors posing as medical middlemen.
To the degree that videos are used regularly by people on the Left and the Right to embarrass political opponents these days, it's remarkable how staunchly indignant the Planned Parenthood supporters are that anyone would tape their personnel speaking freely about the organization's practices. And all the spin from the Left is intended to cast Planned Parenthood as angelic victims being picked on by the evil pro-lifers.
The campaign is working, as Planned Parenthood's allies in the California and federal governments are investigating the maker of the videos, even though the videos clearly contain evidence of possible crimes by the abortion organization that by rights should be investigated.
Don't even get me started on the homosexual rights movement or the "separation of church and state" crowd.
The Satanists planting a statue of the devil in Detroit is more than just an overt symptom of a long-festering disease in this country, it's a crowning achievement.
Maybe The Satanic Temple's support for gay "marriage," abortion and church-state separation means the devil's finally coming out of hiding.

(Breitbart) – Perhaps the Republican leadership and its Establishment apparatus don’t realize just how dangerous is the game they’re playing against conservatives, or perhaps they just don’t care. There is a part of the GOP power structure that has always been most happy to serve as the permanent minority, personally enriched by serving as minor, ineffective obstacles to the ruling Left.
They win elections by cadging millions from conservatives desperate to Do Something about the mess in Washington, then sink comfortably into that mess as though relaxing in a jacuzzi, rousing themselves only to display true fury against the occasional cage-rattling, boat-rocking conservative insurgent.
There are always conservatives who denounce this state of affairs and pronounce themselves tired of serving as campaign-cash piggy banks for politicians who view them as far worse enemies than the Democrats, but in this election cycle, the “Let It Burn” caucus of disgusted, demoralized, and disengaged voters is particularly loud. I don’t think the Establishment understands just how bitter and dispirited their base has become.
Republican leaders said they needed the Senate to get anything done, and they got it, in a historic midterm election landslide. They’ve done absolutely nothing with it. Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) is still the effective Senate Majority Leader – in fact, he’s sitting prettier than ever, because he gets to watch Republicans use his grubby tactics to stymie conservative votes, while his hands remain clean.
A Democrat will most likely get the official Majority Leader post back in 2016, and there won’t even be any sweat stains on the gavel when Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) hands it back to him. Can anyone point to a significant event in the post-midterm Senate that would have gone much differently if Democrats were still the official majority party?
We get no action on Planned Parenthood, even as the nation recoils in horror and disgust from their baby-organ-harvesting operation.
We get no votes on anything of substance to conservatives, no votes that would force Democrats to spend political capital or take uncomfortable on-the-record positions that would alienate voters.
The vote to block Obama’s hideous Iran sellout was pre-sabotaged by changing the rules so that Democrats can’t lose.
All we get is the crony-capitalist Export-Import bank brought back from the grave, with Republican fingerprints all over the shovel.
Here’s how Politico describes the latest encounter between Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and the GOP leadership on Sunday:
Republican leaders, led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), delivered what senators described as punishment for Cruz’s brazen floor tactics — the Texas senator first accused McConnell of lying and later sought to change Senate procedures in order to push for an Iran-related amendment.
So when Cruz came to the floor looking for 16 senators to agree to hold a roll-call vote, only three raised their hands. McConnell, sitting at his desk, turned around and peered at Cruz, who looked stunned at what had just happened. The Senate dispensed with his effort by a voice vote and quickly moved on, doing the same to Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) (R-Utah), a Cruz ally who sought to use arcane procedures to force a vote on defunding Planned Parenthood.
It all went down in an instant, but the message was clear: If Cruz doesn’t want to play nice with his Republican colleagues, they will respond in kind.
“You learn that in kindergarten: You learn to work well together and play by the rules,” said
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) of Tennessee, a close McConnell ally who was beaming after Cruz and Lee were handed such lopsided defeats. “Another thing you learn in kindergarten is to respect one another.”
How’s all that kindergarten respect for Democrats working out for you guys? Do these buffoons have any idea what they’re doing? Do they have a clue how badly their stupid schoolyard smackdowns play with their base voters? Wait until Senator Alexander is comfortably back in the minority, whining like a toddler about how good little boys and girls are supposed to respect each other, while the Democrats ruthlessly stamp his minority caucus into the dirt.
A great deal of what Senator Cruz, and other upstarts like Senator Mike Lee of Utah, are trying to do involves turning the tactics of Democrats back against them. They want to fight with liberal ferocity for conservative causes. Ten minutes spent listening to Cruz makes it clear he understands exactly how the Left’s tactics work, and he’s ready to pull off the Republican gloves – which look like kid gloves, except they’re also connected by a short handcuff chain – and fight under the same rules of engagement.
The only time the bloodless, weary, collegial, ineffective Republican leadership fights that way is when they’re beating down conservative upstarts. If only they would go after Democrats the way they just went after Ted Cruz!
Cruz made that point himself:
The rebuke was the latest in an increasingly testy rivalry marked by accusations of deceit and grandstanding. Cruz, who is running for president, has sought to use his battles with his colleagues — on everything from the 2013 government shutdown to last year’s battle over the debt ceiling — to tell conservatives that he’s the one candidate who will take on an entrenched party leadership. But Republican senators view Cruz as a divisive figure who is only seeking to lift his profile by waging war with his colleagues.
Cruz, his voice rising, tore into McConnell just off the Senate floor.
“Granting a sufficient second for a roll-call vote is done customarily in the United States Senate,” Cruz told reporters. “Denying it is extraordinary, and it was done as a consequence of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell being afraid of this issue.”
He accused McConnell of scheming with Democratic leader Harry Reid.
“To see the so-called Republican leader whip against allowing a vote to defund Planned Parenthood … makes clear that the McConnell-Reid leadership is united in favor of Big Government,” Cruz charged.
If you dessicated gentlemen of the GOP don’t relish watching Democrats seize total power in 2016 and returning to your comfortably padded back benches, you’d better learn how to do a bit of “grandstanding” yourselves.
Ted Cruz didn’t start this war with the Republican establishment. Why aren’t their conservative-bashing tactics considered “divisive?” The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is openly discussing a big-bucks effort to not only freeze out conservative primary candidates in 2016, but actually take out sitting conservative Republican representatives. Isn’t that awfully “divisive?” Especially when one of the big reasons the Chamber is beating the war drums is their hunger for open borders illegal-alien amnesty – one of the most divisive policies ever inflicted on the American people against their manifest will, and an agenda which pretty much guarantees permanent Democrat political power.
Ted Cruz is a top-tier Republican presidential candidate, according to current polls. The GOP Establishment is doing a great deal of damage to its own brand by handling him this way, whether they like it or not. (Sure, the Democrat establishment has said a few nasty things about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), but that stuff will all be memory-holed by the media the instant he’s not a factor in the primary any more, and the Democrat aristocracy is careful to make a play for an upstart liberal’s voters, rather than publicly plotting to marginalize them and treating their issues like annoyances.)
The current front-runner, Donald Trump, is defined by his very loud willingness to tackle Establishment forces, especially the media, which works to set the stage for every presidential election by telling Republican voters which acceptable, genteel losers they’re allowed to support. Trump critics argue that he’s staging an anti-Establishment burlesque, or maybe even running a false-flag operation ultimately intended to hand the election to Democrats… but there’s no doubt a large number of people are responding to what he’s saying, and interpreting the more arrogant responses as assaults upon their own character, not just Trump’s.
Does anyone believe for a microsecond that Republican voters would rally behind the limp battle flags and tinny plastic trumpets of Mitch McConnell and Lamar Alexander to win the presidential battle of 2016? No, the Republican candidate, whoever it is, will spend a good deal of time apologizing to voters for what the GOP leadership has been doing, much as the Democrat candidates are trying to run against the Obama disaster without implicating him personally. Spoiler alert: it’s going to be a lot harder for the Republican candidate to dump their leadership baggage, partly due to the media, and partly because Republicans simply do not enjoy as many automatic votes as Democrats do. Segments of the Republican base have proven time and again that they will stay home, especially if they think voting is futile, or would involve supporting politicians who actively dislike them.
While we argue about tone and tactics, and the Beltway media bemusedly wonders if Cruz or McConnell has the more accurate recollection of some lunch meeting, the actual record of the GOP leadership is a mountain of failure they simply cannot hide. Something has to change in Washington. Everyone knows it. The Republican establishment line used to be, “We can’t do anything when we’re the minority in both houses.” Then it became, “We can’t do anything with only the House.” Now they’re saying they can’t get a blessed thing done, or even start a political fight that would draw some Democrat blood, unless they’ve got the White House too.
Meanwhile, parts of the Democrat base are angry about certain issues, they’ve got a bad case of Clinton fatigue already, and their leadership has been a disaster for America… but Democrat leaders don’t have to apologize to their voters for being an ineffective minority, because they’re not. They don’t back down from tough fights, or stroll across the media landscape bayonetting their own wounded after they lose one.
From the very first hours after those stunning 2014 midterm results began rolling in, Democrats have acted as if the election was an insignificant, maybe even illegitimate temporary interruption of their power. President Obama openly derided the election as meaningless, while liberal pundits hammered out editorials musing that we shouldn’t waste time and money on midterm elections at all. The Republican leadership has given little indication that they disagree.
